Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
An individual is considered literate if he/she can both read and write and not just one or the other. A semi-literate individual (one who can read, but cannot write) is said to be illiterate. In the case where the survey only asks whether an individual can read but does not ask if they can write, and in the case that there is no information in the questionnaire about the reading and writing ability, the literacy status cannot be determined, and these are coded as missing.
If there are no questions about the reading and writing abilities, but the educational attainment is elementary or upper, the individual is considered literate.


COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------
The code "1" in the original variable indicating those below the question age category were recoded missing.
